Keylor Navas to travel to Costa Rica for match against Honduras

Earlier this week it was informed that Keylor Navas suffered an elbow injury in Paris Saint-Germain’s 3-2 win against Bordeaux and he would miss the international window with Costa Rica. The veteran goalkeeper didn’t travel to Costa Rica to continue his recovery in France, but the plans have changed.

Navas to play against Honduras

The PSG goalkeeper recovered earlier than expected and the Costa Rican Soccer Federation has informed that he will join the team for the second game of the World Cup qualifiers. ‘Los Ticos’ will go on the road to face Canada on Friday and then return home to play against Honduras for the last game of the November international window.

Keylor Navas will travel on Thursday to Costa Rica to join the national team for the World Cup qualifying game against Honduras at the Estadio Nacional on 16 November,” read the statement from the Costa Rican Soccer Federation.

Costa Rica has no margin of error with eight games left of the round-robin tournament in CONCACAF. Currently they sit in fifth place with six points and a record of one win, three draws and two losses.
